Video : Build-A-Flower: Hibiscus Release at Altenew & Giveaway!

I have an easy technique to share today using the new release Altenew Build-A-Flower: Hibiscus Stamp Set.

I love to create a background and this one came together in no time at all.  I used only two beautiful Altenew Crisp Ink colours, Dew Drops and Minty Mint.

  1. Lovely card and you were right about the iridescent spray splotches…they complete the card beautifully. TFS.

  2. I love this color combination. And I think hibiscus are my favorite flower after peonies. This looks like a great stamp set. I like what you did with the splatters rather than adding sequins or drops. Makes it very easy to mail. Another beautiful card!

  3. Simply beautiful card, only 2 inks- I might be able to make a similar card! Thank you so much!!

  4. Love your card Therese. The technique of spattering with the iridescent shimmer spray is a lovely idea that I haven’t tried yet, but as I did buy that set of sprays recently I’ll have to give it a try. You are a constant source of inspiration and enjoyment. Always look forward to your videos. Thank you.
